Georgia took at 4-2 lead at the 18:51 mark of the first half and never looked back, at one point extending its lead to 16 after a Stukes three-pointer with just 45 seconds left in the half. Savannah State then answered with a three-pointer of its own off the hand of guard Javon Rudolph. Following two good free-throws from Humphrey, the Dogs took a 15-point lead into halftime, 38-23. A strong defensive effort helped keep the Tigers under 30 points as Georgia recorded five blocks and three steals in the half. Georgia kept the Tigers in a five-minute and 42 second-scoring drought, holding them at nine points from the 11:30 mark until 5:48 when Michael Bennet hit a jumper.
Georgia remained dominant in the second half, increasing its lead to 20 points on a layup from freshman center Rashaad Singleton at the 14:48 mark. Sophomore guard Kevin Brophy converted an old-fashioned three-point play with 2:13 left to play put the Bulldog advantage at 36 points, 79-43, the largest Georgia lead of the game.
Georgia returns to action on Wednesday, Dec. 7 as they host in-state rival Georgia Tech at Stegeman Coliseum. Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. Fox Sports Net will broadcast the game.
